Christmas Day and how do I feel................. "I'm okay"....... or that is what I kept telling John when he was so concerned about me. Yep, I lied to him, I lied to everyone who asked because I felt like crap, I felt like I needed to lay down and nap for about 16 hours.......... and I don't nap......... ever. But it was Christmas and you can't be sick on Christmas, it still happens....... so after my wonderful surprise of a clean house and no dirty dishes all I had to do was make a taco dip, shower and get to Gayles by noon. I did it and even took the time for our annual Christmas morning pictures...... I might have been a bit off...... hence my focus on the self timer being way off. Oh well I tried.
Gayle had the stockings this year so we got the Sock Viewing and Christmas Day at the same time. Gayle and Bill worked very hard to make a fireplace for all our stockings.

We had a few games of Bingo and Giant Jenga
Beau might have grown up a bit.....
Beau making sure Adam isn't cheating
Paige has never played before
Hey Brother Randy...... no cheating
Elaine LOVES this game that is why I picked her to play on the girls team.
This is the highest we ever got and they ran out of moves so Tricia had to take from the top 2 rows
Elaine gets the last possible move
So the boys have to go for it
Adam bails and Randy is caught with the stick in his hand
That is all I took pictures of but we had a great time playing and the kids have so much fun at Gayles. We shook dice and there might have been a little girl who needed a jar to take her winnings home in.
Of course we were the last ones to go home and when we got there I again crashed on the couch until I John got me to take more medicine and off to bed he sent me.
